Our Annual Gala: Thursday, April 26th
Taste of Spring is our annual gala fundraiser. This is our 15th year, and we're moving the event to the OAKLAND MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA, one of Oakland's cultural crown jewels. The event is on Thursday, April 26th at 5:30 pm. Like the past six years, this event will sell out!
We will be featuring exciting silent and live auction items, live local entertainment, gourmet food by Pacific Fine Foods, and hosted beer and wine. Proceeds go toward furthering our mission of helping Oakland kids, and making our parks better.
Last year, Taste of Spring was nominated by Oakland Magazine for Best Charitable Event!
Tickets are on sale now. Early bird pricing of $125 until February 28th. Tickets will be $150 after that.
We will be featuring youth dancers from the East Oakland Sports Complex, as well as a DJ from Today's Future Sound. The event will be emceed by an on-air talent from KTVU news.
